This minor release brings an important new feature for SharePoint users, fixes one issue, and makes some improvements under the hood.
The new Cloud Files feature introduced with this release is all about improving the efficiency of working with cloud-hosted documents in the DocumentTracker. At the moment, the feature supports SharePoint Online only, but an enhancement to support Google Drive is already underway.
Have a look a the Cloud Files and DocumentTracker-related knowledge articles (by clicking on the links) to learn more about this feature, which helps process large numbers of cloud-hosted documents in a very efficient way.
The one behavioral change we made is to respect the user’s automation security settings when opening Office documents from the DocumentTracker. Believe it or not, the default is to always enable macros when opening other Office documents regardless of the user’s automation security settings (in an attempt to not break existing solutions that are based on this assumption). One needs to do extra work to respect the user’s settings. We’ve now done that work, meaning macros will no longer be enabled if the user’s settings demand that macros be disabled.
